What costs you can claim

There are different costs you can claim if you’re eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme.

You need to tell us what you’re claiming for and show us how you've calculated the amount.

If you’re eligible, you can get money for any of the following costs:

If you need help with how much you can get, call the Australian Immunisation Register.

Find more information about what you can claim in the COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme policy on the Department of Health and Aged Care website.

Before you can claim, you need to get your doctor to complete a COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme medical report. You need this as proof when you submit the claim. We’ll need your doctor’s responses to help us assess your claim. You also need to provide a completed COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme expenses form, showing both:

  • the amount you’re claiming
  • matching proof to support your losses and expenses, such as invoices, quotes, and payslips.

To support your claim, you need to give us a statement confirming any third party payments you’ll get for the categories you’re claiming for. This statement can be a statutory declaration, an email, or a letter signed and dated by you.
